THE LIBRARY IS OPEN BECAUSE WHAT? PERFORMANCE ART IS FUNDAMENTAL!
27 February 24
As an immaterial practice, performance art’s relationship to archive has always been a fraught one. Using their own documentation from the FADO archive, these five artists activate and challenge the linear narrative of the archive by creating new video works inspired by (or even using) their own documentation material.
Videos by Gustaf Broms (Sweden), Heather Rule (Canada), Margaret Dragu (Canada), MC Coble (USA/Sweden), Simla Civelek (Canada).
Call for submissions for curatorial proposals in FADO’s Emerging Artists Series.
Deadline date: March 1, 2024
WEDNESDAYS in Jan/Feb 2024
Join FADO and head librarian Claudia Edwards for The Ephemeral Library Society and performance-art themed group activities and solo study time in a community setting. All are welcome—from the newly performance-curious to the mid-life know-it-alls to and the elder-devotees.
Expect fresh hot popcorn!
The FADO website is guided by colour and scent. Think of it as a digital scratch n’ sniff. Bespoke fragrances, created by the minds (and noses) at I Know You Know, formulated from our navigation menu help you to follow your nose from performance to artist to series and more. Smell here.
An ode to FADO's history, Series Purple is composed of a collection of purple fragrance materials dating back to the Roman Empire. Dense, intense, and meandering, this fragrance tells us non-linear stories.
